Steve communicated with me before the wedding and listened to what was said. He arrived early and started photographing before I even knew he was there. I'm anxious to see the pictures because he did a great job posing the groups. We had eight children, seven six years old and younger. He was patient and cheerful throughout the whole session. I would hire Steve again in a heartbeat.

I am so glad that Ben was available to officiate our wedding on 9/30! My husband and I met with Ben via FaceTime several months ago, as we were planning our wedding in Wake Forest from Boston, where we currently live. Even though we were so far away, Ben made the process very simple for us and walked us through everything that we needed to do, as well as everything that he would handle. He was very professional during the entire process, from our initial meeting via FaceTime to after our wedding. I highly recommend Ben Poston to anyone that is getting married in the Raleigh area!

It has been a pleasure working with Toia. She is very professional, made me feel very comfortable and made me look stunning on my wedding day. She knew the colors to use for my skin tone, shimmer, and lipcolors. She also did my eyes so well- normally my eyes water or dont do well post application of makeup. She took care of it very professionally and did my eye makeup with extra care. She is amazing at hair styling as well and made me look gorgeous. I highly recommend her. Also her husband AJ is an amazing photographer. Their combined package of photography , makeup and hairstyling is excellent.

I cannot say enough awesome things about Nasim. She worked with me from beginning to end and has awesome ideas on what to do with my venue space. My wedding turned out beautifully thanks to her handy work. Not only did she do all the decorating and centerpieces, but she took care of all the floral arrangements as well. Lilac Floral Decor is truly a one stop shop. I was able to save so much money not having to hire a florist separate from Nasim which I am so grateful for. Guests came up to my husband and I all night long complimenting the venue and the decorations. It really couldn’t have been any better, it was perfect! Nasim and her partner were at my venue from early morning until my ceremony began at 3 in 95 degree heat making sure everything was perfect. I would recommend Lilac Floral Decor for any event, Nasim is the absolute best!

I hired Karyn last year to do my hair and my bridesmaids and flower girl's hair for my wedding last year. I showed her the picture I had in mind on pinterest for my hair and let her do whatever she wanted for the other girls. It is an understatement to say it all came out perfect! It matched the picture and she added her own style to make it match my face. It was an outdoor wedding in the southern heat and humidity of July and the style held all day and through the night. There is no frizz or fly-aways even on the close up shots in my wedding album! I would/will definitely use Karyn again for any event now that I know the quality of her work. I wish I had a better/close up image to share because the pictures do not do it justice!

Working with Lorenzo was great! 2 days before the wedding, I emailed him our custom playlist. The day before the wedding, we stayed on the phone for about 30 minutes, discussing how everything would come together and he made sure that we stayed on the same page. During the ceremony, he played everything that I had asked for and during the reception, he was on top of everything! When the family wanted to sit down, he made sure that everybody got up to dance. Many of my relatives had strayed outside for smoke breaks after dinner but his emcee skills brought everyone back in just to get in the Soul Train line!!

What can I say about Kelsey...SHE IS BEYOND AMAZING! My wife and I hired her for our wedding and received way more than we could ever imagine. As a photographer myself, I knew she was a perfect fit when we first spoke. Her energy and attention to detail is unmatched. When looking for a photographer, it's very important to hire someone that not only gets your vision but brings more to enhance it in ways you couldn't imagine. Kelsey is not only a great photographer but a wonderful human being. HIRE HER!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a videographer and what do they do?

A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

How do you choose a wedding videographer?

A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

What should you ask your wedding videographer before hiring?

Finding the perfect wedding videographer doesn’t have to be stressful. Asking a few key questions upfront will help you find the right fit for your big day. Before talking with wedding videographers, research their work online. Look at their websites, business profiles and social media, and see what their finished wedding videos look like. If the style fits what you’re envisioning, it’s time to reach out. During initial contact, make sure you get along with the person. This is important since they’ll be interacting with you and your guests.

Your first question should be about their availability; there’s no point in going further if they’re booked on your wedding day. Ask to see references if they’re not readily available online. Next, it’s time to talk about money. Ask how they determine rates or what kind of packages they offer. When you settle on a rate and the services you want, make sure to have a written contract that outlines everything, including cost, length of time they film, what post-production will include, and when you can expect to receive the edited project.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
